Stem cell identity in culture may strongly depend on the cellular microenvironment
Identification, isolation and large scale culture of stem cells for potential medical applications is a major challenge in cell biology. View News Article (2007-04-25)

ALBA Synchrotron used for first time as a microscope to determine protein structure
A team led by David Reverter, a researcher at the Institute of Biotechnology and Biomedicine (IBB) of the UAB, has determined for the first time the three-dimensional structure of a protein pair: LC8 and Nek9. Depending on whether or not they bind, Nek9 ensures that the chromosomes group and separate correctly during cell division.  View News Article (2013-04-11)

A recent special edition of the journal Fungal Biology Reviews, published by Elsevier, on behalf of the British Mycological Society, features a total of 76 videos which together comprise the most comprehensive collection of fungal cell biology movies ever published. View News Article (2011-03-17)

Cells take sole responsibility for Merkel cell maintenance
Researchers have identified a population of "progenitor" cells in the skin that are solely responsible for the generation and maintenance of touch-sensing Merkel cells. The study appears in The Journal of Cell Biology.  View News Article (2015-01-26)

Researchers define role of CEP290 in maintaining ciliary function
A new study in the September 6 issue of the Journal of Cell Biology helps define the role of an important ciliary protein, CEP290. View News Article (2010-09-07)

ETH Zurich: Fast and Cheap Detection of Bacteria
Carbohydrates displayed on the surface of cells play critical roles in cell-cell recognition, adhesion, signaling between cells, and as markers for disease progression. Neural cells for instance use carbohydrates to facilitate development and regeneration and viruses recognize carbohydrates to gain entry into host cells. Identification of the specific saccharides involved in these processes is... View News Article (2004-12-17)

SLU scientists have identified the first gene regulating programmed cell death in plant embryos
A research team at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, SLU, has succeeded in isolating a novel gene that regulates cell death in plant embryos. This is a world first. The team consists of scientists from the Department of Plant Biology and Forest Genetics, headed by Peter Bozhkov and Sara von Arnold. The team has discovered programmed cell death in plant embryos and has recently... View News Article (2004-06-01)

New insight into Alzheimer's disease pathology
An Alzheimer's-related protein helps form and maintain nerve cell connections, according to a study published in the May 4 print issue of the Journal of Cell Biology and online at View News Article (2009-05-04)

Sall4 is required for DNA repair in stem cells
A protein that helps embryonic stem cells (ESCs) retain their identity also promotes DNA repair, according to a study in The Journal of Cell Biology. View News Article (2015-03-02)

Newly discovered molecule may offer hope for immune disorders and runaway inflammation
A new research discovery published in the April 2014 issue of the Journal of Leukocyte Biology may open the door to new therapies that help treat immune disorders or curb runaway inflammation. View News Article (2014-04-01)
